Well, the wheel well gap is not as prevalent. I haven't driven the car too much since the install. I noticed bumps caused the car to rise up and down a bit more. Overall, the ride isn't that much different. It's not jarring, it's still very pleasant. I'll be taking the car out tonight to test it out a bit more. Heading over to the cruise in by Culver's in Palatine. The stereo sure sounds different. I have bass now! LOL

Yeah, it looks like Ford made a Camaro. LOL I like it, because it's different.

- The following message is the opinion of one guy at Pfadt Racing, and does not reflect the position as the company as a whole -

As a massive Canucks fan it pains me to see any kind of reference to Blackhawks 2010. Sweet car though, hope you're enjoying it... I know I sure would be if I were in your shoes!

Well, maybe 2011 is Vancouver's year!

Just ordered an e-brake boot from Camaro Style (DSV).
Ordered a custom stand from Car Show Display.
In the process of having JarheadBobandMax make a trunk lid display for me. You'll like this one!
Pics to come when I get each one installed.

I googled my car and found this article today: http://performancebiz.com/rides/blackhawk-camaro
It pretty much sums up the car before I was lucky enough to win it. I also just recently was given a copy of the October 2010 issue of "Restyling" magazine, which contains a nice article on the car.

Thanks Justmeron.

Okay, Blackhawk fans. More changes to come. Lots of stuff in the works before I make the trip to Oshawa! Blackhawk is going to make another trip to Showstopper Accessories for some new paint. Pete's gonna paint the roof glossy black, extend the mono stripe from the hood to the trunk, paint my rotors black, and I'm adding black caliper covers (MGP). Oh, and I almost forgot! Finally going to tint the windows! Haha.

A couple more things to add: I'm having engine bay lighting done and adding a red bowtie to the hood liner. Not sure if I'll post pics before Oshawa.

Painted rotors and caliper covers are going on next week. I did install the leather e-brake boot from DSV. Red bowtie on hood liner, trunk lid installed, engine bay lighting done as well as the windows tinted, roof painted, trunk stripe painted, roof molding painted and antennae painted.

Thanks Pete! I dropped my shorty headers off to Lo Ko Performance today. On the way back I was pulling into a Shell station and got mobbed. So I popped the hood and trunk and answered questions while I filled up. I love showing this car off to kids. Some older gentleman even popped the "are you a player" question. It never gets old. Goodtimes.

Team LLT FTW

After they announced the top ten awards for the gen5, I thought I still had a shot at best paint. Boy, was I surprised to get "Outstanding American Camaro". It made the ride back sweet. I still had to fight off a hangover, but I've never had a more comfortable, enjoyable ride. Thanks Oshawa, GM, OCC, and BBOMG! And thank you Stephanie Maxwell for finding me and giving me your award. The amount of attention people gave my car blew me away. I just wish I had spent more time at the OCC Nationals to show it off to those who missed it.
